Soak the grains in the hot water for 15 minutes.Lift the grain bag in and out of the water as if it were a teabag.
After soaking the grains,lift the grain bag out of the water,once the bag has dripped almost all of the water out,
discard the grains and return to heat untill boiling.

Turn off the heat once again and move the stockpot to a cool burner.Add the malt extract 7LBS. Amber Extract,1/4 LB.Corn syrup

Stir constantly while adding to dissolve the malt extract.Return to a boil,once its a controlled boil.add the bittering hops

So 90 or 60 minute boil?

I think he means 60 not ninety because he starts the cool down @60 minutes

Do you add the corn syrup to increase the amount of fermentable sugar, or is that adding flavor somehow. Seems like a lot of purists frown on getting fermentable sugars from any other source than grain. I'm a newb, so just trying to understand it all.

Thanks, I'm gonna brew this recipe next.
